Mumbai, May 31: Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is set to make her television debut as a judge on reality show “Dance India Dance – Battle of the Champions”, says she always use heart more than mind.
On being asked if she is feeling any pressure about how the audience will accept her real-life personality on TV, Kareena stated “I think all my fans out there who know me or have seen me in films for years, are very well aware of the fact that I am taking all my decisions of my career from the heart.
“In fact, I use my heart more than my mind. So, my journey as a dance judge will also be thought out from the heart. I do not think I will be very tough. We have to understand that all the participants who are performing on stage, have reached there after crossing a lot of hurdles. So they need that encouragement and support.
Along with the other two judges of the show — choreographer Bosco Martis and rapper Raftaar, the actress attended the launch of the show on Thursday.
Kareena has herself featured in several dance-tracks, including “Chammak challo”, “Mauja hi mauja” and “Yeh ishq hai” in films.
She said that in the past five years, she had many TV show offers coming her way. But she didn’t accepted them.
Explaining why, Kareena asserted : “TV has long shooting hours… they work for 12 hours. I cannot work more than 8 hours after (my son) Taimur’s birth.
“I am a working mother and I always make sure that I have to reach home before his dinner. That evening time is our time. I will not compromise on that. Thankfully, with the ZEE TV and the ‘Dance India Dance’ team, we are working out on that nicely. I can start my day early but I have to reach home before Taimur eats dinner.”
The lines between mediums of entertainment seeems to blurring — be it about Amitabh Bachchan hosting a TV show or Saif Ali Khan acting in a web series.
